- A Brief History of High-Performance Computing (HPC)
XSEDE works with several organizations in a partnership to support and promote a global effort towards extreme digital science at a global scale. Some of these partnering organizations are listed here.
The mission of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is to enable high impact scientific discovery and engineering research and development across all disciplines to enhance European competitiveness for the benefit of society. PRACE seeks to realize this mission by offering world class computing and data management resources and services through a peer review process.
PRACE also seeks to strengthen the European users of HPC in industry through various initiatives. PRACE has a strong interest in improving energy efficiency of computing systems and reducing their environmental impact.
Compute Canada, in partnership with regional organizations ACENET, Calcul Québec, Compute Ontario and WestGrid, leads the acceleration of research and innovation by deploying state-of-the-art advanced research computing (ARC) systems, storage and software solutions. Together we provide essential ARC services and infrastructure for Canadian researchers and their collaborators in all academic and industrial sectors. Our world-class team of more than 200 experts employed by 37 partner universities and research institutions across the country provide direct support to research teams. Compute Canada is a proud ambassador for Canadian excellence in advanced research computing nationally and internationally.
RIKEN is Japan's largest comprehensive research institution renowned for high-quality research in a diverse range of scientific disciplines. Founded in 1917 as a private research foundation in Tokyo, RIKEN has grown rapidly in size and scope, today encompassing a network of world-class research centers and institutes across Japan.
The ACI-REF consortium includes six institutions that embrace a condominium computing model. We are dedicated to forging a nationwide alliance of educators to empower local campus researchers to be more effective users of advanced cyberinfrastructure (ACI). In particular, we seek to work with the “long tail” of ACI users—those scholars and faculty members who traditionally have not benefited from the power of massively scaled cluster computing but who recognize that their research requires access to more compute power than can be provided by their desktop machines.
LCI is the premier international forum to share information on management, administration, and advanced computing techniques for high performance clustered computing. Founded in 1998, it includes some of the world's foremost specialists in building and deploying clustered high-performance computing systems.
LCI offers advanced technical training for those interested in deploying high-performance computing clusters through its workshops.
